Who says you can’t drink in the morning? Especially when they are cocktails that are going down with a delicious breakfast at a cafe in Canberra. Whether you are preparing for a big day ahead, are in need of a pick-me-up after a big night the night before or just have no reason at all, no one is judging you! The locations we have found in Canberra do breakfast cocktails in style and share the same belief that it is never too early for a drink!

Urban Pantry

Say good morning with a drink in hand at Urban Pantry in Manuka. Serving up the breakfast cocktail classics, choose between a Bloody Mary, Mimosa or an Espresso Martini…but don’t think you have to limit yourself to one.
